Don't Cry For Me (I'll Be In Newfoundland)

As I grow older, my time draws near,
I pray to be with my Lord so dear;
I've chosen my heaven, God hear my plea,
Don't cry for me, my friends, this is where I'll be.

Where the waters run clear, the mountains high,
No place compares under God's own sky;
The place of my birth from where I roamed,
When the time has come, I'll be going home.
Where I'll hold my mother,
I'll shake the hand of the man,
I'll walk those rugged shores
carved by God's own hand;
I will stroll her valleys, I hope you understand,
Don't you cry for me, my friends,
I'll be in Newfoundland.

With parting comes sorrow, heartache and tears,
As we look back on the times we shared;
But for all mankind this time must come,
But don't cry for me, my friends,
I'm just going home.

Where waters run clear, her mountains high,
No place compares under God's own sky;
The place of my birth from where I roamed,
When the time has come I'll be going home.
Where I'll hold my mother,
I'll shake the hand of the Man,
I'll walk her rugged shores
carved by God's own hand;
I will stroll her valleys, I hope you understand,
Don't you cry for me, my friends,
I'll be in Newfoundland.
Don't you cry for me, my friends,
I'll be in Newfoundland.

Note by Sean Kenny: A song I wrote which was going to be "My Newfoundland" but somehow got changed to this as I got to writing and rewriting. The pics are from my hometown of Port au Port and some other places around the island.
